First of all, I'm glad you brothers got sarge straight on that nonsense azz approach to trying to refute the truth. It is a sad state of affairs when one provides unequivocable proof and the person who does not want to believe it sticks to their inaccurate beliefs. In academia, people like that get ran out of the building with their tails tucked between their legs.
I reject Conservative America's plea for and/or offer of a colorblind society as patently disingenuous. This is merely its attempt to convince its continuing victims (or maybe, itself) that it no longer plan to harm them, while leaving in place the institutions that its victimization created.
* I feel the same way about the use of the term diversity. To me, it is a methodical way of lumping black people in with others to minimize the individual nature of the problems created for us systematically. It is a way of saying our reality is just like ever other non-white's reality while overlooking things that did not affect others. The colorblind notion speaks from the premise that all is equal and america rewards its citizens equally for equal efforts.... and we all know that is a crock...
